Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
Wellstar pediatric cardiologists work with a team of pediatric specialists to care for children with heart conditions.
Wellstar’s pediatric cardiologists provide highly specialized care for children with congenital heart defects. They have in-depth knowledge of congenital diseases, which are present at birth. Children may need an evaluation by a pediatric cardiologist if they have heart murmurs, abnormal heart rhythms or faint regularly.
Our child heart experts can evaluate and create comprehensive treatment plans for children and teenagers with congenital heart defects, arrhythmias (heart rhythm disorders), cardiomyopathies and heart failure. Wellstar’s pediatric cardiology specialists work with a team to provide comprehensive, coordinated care, which may include pediatric heart surgeons and electrophysiologists (heart rhythm specialists) as well as occupational therapists, medical geneticists, pediatric nurses and dietitians. Procedures pediatric cardiologists perform may include heart catheterizations to evaluate the heart’s function and relieve blockages. If surgery is required, pediatric cardiologists also work as a team with pediatric surgeons.
